How do I make my website GDPR compliant?

With lots of talk about GDPR in the business press at the moment, you may be wondering if your website or other web based services are GDPR compliant.

Here at Invent Partners, our software is designed to help you make your website GDPR compliant. Here are some of the ways we can help

GDPR Secure User Data

In order to comply with the requirements of GDPR, you need to have made reasonable efforts to secure your user data. This means making sure that user data is transmitted and stored securely.

SSL: Secure transmission of user data

By using an SSL certificate, you can make sure that your website runs as HTTPS, meaning that your users' data is encrypted before transmission, securing it against interception during transmission. Invent Partners can provide and install SSL certificates and configure HTTPS for your business.

Secure storage of user data

You should make efforts to ensure that your user data is securely stored. For example, many shared hosting services require you to upload and download your data using FTP.

GDPR Right of Deletion

Under GDPR, individuals have the right to have all the data you hold on them deleted. In order to facilitate this, our website management platform (CMS) offers a GDPR compliant user delete function which will remove all personal data provided by the user.
